[ANNOUNCE] xf86-input-libinput 0.19.0

One significant change that affects packagers: the config snippet has been
renamed from 90-libinput.conf to 60-libinput.conf.

This should not show any immediate effects on most user's machines but there
is a slight potential of user configurations to change if their custom
snippets now sort after libinput instead of before.

This change is part of the two-step solution to fix the handling of wacom
tablets when the libinput driver is present. Previously, the libinput driver
would overwrite any driver assigned to any supported devices. While it does
not yet bind to tablet devices by default, some tablets also look like 
a keyboard, causing those devices to stop working. For those devices, the
wacom driver is the better option.

Since the X server is lacking an option to conditionally bind InputClass
snippets based on current values (git master has a NoMatch* option), the
safe alternative is to bump the libinput priority down and, at the same
time, bump the wacom driver's priority up.

For the cases where the wacom driver should not handle any device, simply
uninstalling it is sufficient.
